Oklahoma defensive end D.J. Ward tweeted that “everything went well” with his Tuesday morning splenectomy.

Sooners coach Bob Stoops announced after Tuesday's practice that Ward had his spleen removed and that he expected the freshman to miss around six weeks. Stoops said he hadn't considered yet if Ward would redshirt this season.

Ward was considered the top college football prospect in the state of Oklahoma for 2013 after his junior season at Lawton. He transferred to Douglass, then to Southmoore in August of his senior year, and was ruled ineligible by the OSSAA after the second transfer. (The Oklahoman)
